Simulation adjustments available in the Pulse forecasting functionality

Simulation Adjustments in the forecasting functionality

Simulation adjustments enable you to factor in significant anticipated or past traffic deviations in your forecasts. For example, if you published videos that caused a significant increase in traffic compared to your normal traffic, then this extra traffic is going to influence all forecasts. To compensate for this traffic deviation, you mark the extra traffic in a simulation adjustment and the forecasting engine then compensates for it.

Note: these adjustments affect ALL aspects of forecasting, including the campaign progress bar, Campaign, and Inventory simulations.

To access Simulation Adjustments in the Pulse UI, select Planner>Simulation Adjustments from the menu bar.

Example of simulation adjustments:
